Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich says
I will fight, I will fight, I will fight, a reaction that some folks in politics wish had been Jeri Ryan’s response to her husband’s suggestion to a night on the town.
Blagojevich appears to have at least a defense to the charges brought by Patrick Fitzgerald, chief among them being, according to the CBS affiliate in Chicago, “scheming” which is local news speak for conspiracy law violations. The real news from the governor’s Nixonesque press conference is that he has drawn a line in the sand, so to speak, and signaled that he won’t be shamed out of office.
Being stupid and greedy and vain is not a crime. As Charles Krauthammer just said, “In the name of entertainment I’m in favor of his staying in office.”
So am I.
